Scarlet Roads (formerly Over The Wall) are ready to take the next step in a musical journey that has taken them from the U.S. to Canada and Europe. Armed with a dynamic dose of R&B/Rock flavored jams, the six members that make up the band are true road warriors. In fact, the name change to Scarlet Roads was inspired by their constant traveling to play gigs. Says James Jannetty (keyboards / lead vocals) “the name comes from traveling from Hollywood to the desert to play shows...taking the Scarlet Roads.”
Like so many great bands before them, Scarlet Roads have honed their skills on the road in front of live audiences and have earned a solid following built at legendary clubs like The House of Blues, The Viper Room, Malibu Inn, Molly Malone’s, and the iconic Red Barn in Palm Desert, to name a few. Most weekends you can find Scarlet Roads playing a local club somewhere in Southern California. Their unique blend of R&B and rock keeps fans dancing all night long.
Scarlet Roads was formed in the halls of the famed Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, CA. Each band member has studied their craft of songwriting, musicianship, and performing for years and that dedication shows on stage and in the studio. Despite the band members average age of 24, this band rocks like seasoned musical veterans.
The band recently entered Westlake Studios with Grammy-Award winning producer Bob Cutarella to record a slew of original songs that showcase the band’s high energy sound and musical chops. The resulting record will be released sometime Fall 2013 / early 2014.
